“All Day and All of the Night”, by the Kinks, was released as a single from their album, “Kinks-Size” in 1964. It was written by Ray Davies, and is on the Pye and Reprise labels.

From the Songfacts article: https://www.songfacts.com/facts/the-kinks/all-day-and-all-of-the-night

During a July 12, 2006 concert at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga, Ray Davies explained how the song was originally rejected by his record company because it was “too blue-collar, too working-class” and because the record execs thought the guitar sounded like a dog’s bark.

I’m not content to be with you in the daytime
Girl, I want to be with you all of the time
The only time I feel alright is by your side
Girl, I want to be with you all of the time
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
I believe that you and me last forever
Oh yeah, all day and nighttime yours, leave me never
The only time I feel alright is by your side
Girl, I want to be with you all of the time
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
Oh, come on
I believe that you and me last forever
Oh yeah, all day and nighttime yours, leave me never
The only time I feel alright is by your side
Girl, I want to be with you all of the time
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night-time
All day and all of the night

Now for another contrast!

This is the same song as a cover, done by The Scorpions.

This video is of course in color, but the whole thing is jazzed up with the lights and the energy displayed by the band.

In the original video of the Kinks, there are no flashing lights, no color, and really not much excitement of them singing the song. It is very plain and they barely move around the stage.

I much prefer the Scorpions!

Funny & Found

I’m forever buying used notebooks, diaries, scrapbooks, yearbooks, and finding fun things in them. I also find other things that are funny, or it’s funny where I find them.

I find people’s discarded grocery lists, too, along with whole photo albums, cards and letters.

I just like finding things like these, because I try to imagine who wrote them, why something was discarded, and what the people’s stories are.

So, I’ll post a few of these from time to time.

***

First photo is of a small diary. It has a blue background with white winged dragonflies on the cover

The spelling of these pages is pretty bad, but it’s done by a kid.

The next page says: Today was awfullest because I had to go and get my brother and he usually is angry, but today he wasn’t and I gave him two chances. Good bye.

The last page says: Rowdy loves me and he asked me to be his girl friend and I said yes. Good bye.

The photos show a big circus tent. It is red and blue striped, with flags on top. There is a banner in yellow, that says Carson and Barnes Circus.

We went to a performance there, but I can’t remember when or where it was – a long time ago.

“Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite”, by the Beatles.

I read that this song was inspired by an actual circus poster that they’d seen.

This prompt today is one of my suggestions. I like all kinds of rock songs which is favorite type of music to listen to. That was the only problem – so many I like, and most all are about love in some way or another.

I do like this song a lot, though. My daughter saw them in concert a long time ago. Wish I had.

“Love Song”, by Tesla, was released from their 1989 album, “the Great Radio Controversy”. It was written by Jeff Keith and Frank Hannon, and is on the Geffen label.

The song reached number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also became a gold record.

Quadrille #97 – Filling the Page

WRITER’S LAMENTDSC00218

An entire blank page

Vacant of words

Daring me to fill it…

This special pressure to create

Something out of nothingness…

Oh, fortify me…bear with me…

For to never match my emotions

To my words within

Would be

Tragic –

Would persecute forever more…

~

For dVerse poetry – prompt word = Fill. Thanks to our host of this 44 word Quadrille – De Jackson

Created from 10 random words I picked from a thesaurus…with my eyes closed. Chosen words are in bold, and using the prompt word Fill.
